ORNAMENTAL PLANTS GROWN IN FLATS, BENCHES, OR BEDS

General Information

USE INFORMATION

This product is for insect control in grassy areas in nurseries and on ornamental plants in nurseries, greenhouses and interior plantscapes. This product is a systemic product and will be translocated upward within the plant. To assure optimum effectiveness, the product must be placed by incorporation where the roots of the plant can absorb the active ingredient. Irrigate modestly but thoroughly after application, allowing no runoff from treated area and no leaching and runout from containers for at least three irrigations or 10 days whichever is longer.

Resistance: Some insects are known to develop resistance to Insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your Cooperative Extension Service for resistance management strategies and recommended pest management practices for your area.

Incorporation: Incorporation of this product can be achieved by cultivation, irrigation, rainfall, mechanical placement or by using mechanical soil or media mixing equipment.

Woody Perennials: Onset of protection is slower than in herbaceous species. A delay of 2 or more weeks should be expected. Longer delays may be expected with larger plants. Application should therefore be made in advance of expected insect activity.

Bark Media: Media with 30% or more bark content when treated with this product may confer a shorter period of protection.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

Apply as a broadcast treatment and incorporate into the soil or media before planting, irrigate moderately after application to move the active ingredient into the root zone. Minimize leaching and run out for at least 3 irrigations or 10 days, whichever is longer.

1. Fungus gnat larvae in the soil will be controlled by incorporation. No adult Fungus Gnat control. Other foliar insect control is achieved by the uptake of this product from a healthy root system translocating the active ingredient up into the plant.

2.Citrus Root Weevil: For use on non-bearing citrus nursery stock.

3. Thrips suppression on foliage only. Thrips in buds and flowers will not be suppressed.

Restrictions
